Puma concolor, the mountain lion, meets Homo dingus dongus, the urban dweller who is all for wild nature — as long as it’s predator-free. Set in Sacramento, Calif., this is a tensely told novel about the inevitable conflict between humans and big cats, fueled by growth that’s turned former rangeland into "something that looked like a Scrabble board late in the game, at the point when you can’t get a word in edgewise."
